In addition to psychotherapy, I offer life coaching in-person to Bay Area residents and online nationally. The focus of coaching is development and implementation of strategies to reach your identified goals of enhanced performance and personal satisfaction. Coaching may address specific personal projects, life balance, job performance and satisfaction, or general conditions in your, business, or profession. Coaching utilizes personal strategic planning, values clarification, brainstorming, motivational counseling, the science of habit formation and behavior change, and positive psychology.
While there are some similarities between coaching and psychotherapy, they are very different activities and it is important that you understand the differences between them. The major differences are in the goals, focus, and level of professional responsibility. Generally, life coaching is appropriate for people who have already done some therapeutic work and want to shift focus from healing to thriving.
Unlike psychotherapy, life coaching is available also to those residing outside of California.
